PayPal keeps returning to failure page

I am having a problem with eCart6 since making it live.
When an order is sent to PayPal it returns to checkout failure every time. I have tried several methods of payment (of which I know all have funds), without any luck.
The site worked fine when it was using my own server on my computer, but as soon as I uploaded it the problems started.
I have changed the return address in pp_confirm from the local host to the servername which I presume is correct as before I changed them they where returning to my local server address.
I have attached my pp_confirm page so you can make sure I have made the correct changes for redirect.
Any ideas?

I have sorted it. It wasn't the pp_confirm page where the alterations were needed.
I did a site search for my local server name and found two occurances on the confirm.php page which I changed for the full URL of the site. I also changed the pp_confirm back to their original settings and all works well now.
It's a shame that I had to do a search to find them, couldn't there be an easier way to change this? I'm sure most people use a local server for testing and this needs to be set up when you first set up the cart. Would it be possible (in the future) for us to be able to change this when we call up the Cart Object or similar?
